Dr. Hallowell: It’s Crazy to Give Toddlers ADHD Medication

People are looking for a quick solution for an age old problem of rambunctious children. We should play with them and take care of them instead. Long term effects are not understood. Controlled substance is not a trivial intervention.

Instead, human connection is the better solution – albeit labor intensive. Physicians that are well-trained do not give into the pressures of the parents.

Dr. Hallowell recommends abruptly stopping medications (no side effects) and instead spending time with them.

Watch the video at Fox and Friends.
